Appeal for More Funding for Rainbows
5th March 2009
... Comments

Heard local MP Andy Reed on PMQs yesterday asking for more government funding for hospices like Rainbows in Loughborough - apparently children's hospices get only 5% of their funds from the public purse, whereas adult hospices get around 30%.

The issue was also picked up by Radio 5 Live this morning so good publicity, but have to say that it was first raised in parliament nearly 9 years ago so it shows the glacial pace of change is still there in politics.

If you feel the issue needs more support you can contact Andy Reed via his website or find him on Twitter at #andyreedmp
